It is my son's graduation today and in about half an hour we need to be on our way (and he still hasn't had breakfast, nor is he fully dressed as yet :shock: ). And tonight we'll go to the ball, in "elegant evening robes" (as was requested on the invitations) - so I had to get a new "elegant evening robe" for myself ... since I no longer fit into anything I once fitted in 20 years ago :roll: This is all quite a bit exciting. But here in Germany, the students don't wear robes and hats for their graduation, they just dress nicely (shirt, tie, jacket), which makes all the difference, since - no school uniforms! - they usually go to school in VERY casual clothes. I hope for a good seat so I can get a photo of the headmaster handing him his graduation certificate ("Abitur").
